Jeremy is an excellent teacher. My daughter has benefited in more ways than I can count because of Jeremy. She has become more organized and is learning an advanced curriculum in both math and writing. He is a dedicated teacher and always makes sure my child's learning comes first. Now, instead of arguing with her to study for exams, she does so without hesitation. He gives me a summary of every lesson and explains what my daughter has been learning and what she can improve on. Overall, Jeremy is a excellent role model and plays a pivotal role in my daughter's life. I won't hesitate to hire him again for my second daughter if needed.

Michele was very efficient and to the point. She is easy to communicate with and has a lot of advice. Her prices are more then fair. She listens to you and works with you, often writing multiple drafts for you. That's very rare to find. I enjoyed working with her.

I am a small business owner of Hit the Pin Carpentry. I met Jo-D through work on remodeling her house, and, in turn, I became her customer as I discussed my business needs and challenges. She has helped me tremendously for several years with ideas to improve my business' visibility. She made my website by writing all of it and worked with a designer friend of hers so it appeared very professional. My website has been an invaluable tool as potential customers can visit it to see the quality of my carpentry work. She continues to help me with marketing and managing my business. Her abilities are amazing as she reviews written materials before I submit them to make sure there are no mistakes. I encourage anyone seeking help for their written materials to hire her.

High PR SEO Packages did an awesome job on a website for our photography business. We had no idea where to start however they showed us some awesome samples to pick from. They also helped us with some social media platform building and connected them all to our new website as well as seo and our website has started ranking very well in our area. We've used them for seo, web maintenance and content writing and would highly recommend them. Don and Susan Carr

Paula Lin is one of the greatest communicators I've ever met in the media business, able to take a job from start to finish, and do it well, on deadline, whether it's reporting on the spot news for broadcast, or the professional reading of a dedicated script. Even better - she is a very calm, considerate person who is really easy to get along with on a job - a truly delightful, dedicated co-worker you can trust with your top projects. I first met Paula when she was reporting with CNN more than 20 years ago, and knew then what a truly talented journalist she is. In the years since, I've been fortunate to see how broadcast production is just one of many skills she brings to a project. Best of all is her good character. It's always nice to have someone you enjoy working with, and you can trust on a job.

Working with Aubyn was great. My resume and cover letter was completed in the time frame that was given. As a bonus Aubyn helped me with interviewing skills but facilitating a mock interview. Aubyn was professional, patient and understanding at all times.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you hire a good grant writer?

Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

  • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
  • Strong writing skills.
  • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
  • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
  • Expertise in your target area.
  • Punctuality and good communication skills.

How much does a grant writer cost?

Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

  • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
  • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
  • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
  • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
